Cox to redevelop Adelaide Oval

April 21, 2011

Cox Architecture appointed for $450 million redevelopment project of Adelaide Oval.

Cox Architecture has been appointed by the Government of South Australia to carry out a $450 million upgrade of the Adelaide Oval – if the project gets the go ahead.

Cox’s stadium design will build on the recently completed Western Stand, a collaborative design by HASSELL and Cox, which was finished in late 2010.

Once complete, the 50,000-seat stadium will provide new lounges, internal streets, cafes and bars. The upgraded stadium will be connected to the city via a pedestrian bridge, with a new public plaza catering for large events.

Cox Architecture’s Project Director Alastair Richardson said: “the redeveloped Adelaide Oval will create a great cultural and social building for Adelaide that will bring sport fans and the community together in the heart of the city.

“It will create a new landmark that will embody the latest in stadia design from around the world as well as leading elements of environmentally sustainable design. It will celebrate the heritage of the oval and its parkland setting, building on its tradition as one of the world’s leading oval stadia.”

Members of the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA) will meet on 2 May to discuss whether or not to approve the development. If approved, development is due for completion in 2014.
